Widening Achievement

We have a wide programme of events which run for our pupils. We will be working hard this session 2018/2019 to offer a more varied programme of events to maximise participation and ensure everyone can access these great opportunities

These events take place both within and outwith the school day.

We are very proud to have provided FREE swimming lessons for ALL pupils from P1-7 in 2018/2019. The focus of these lessons has been to develop swimming skills and water confidence which we believe are vital life skills. We have worked closely with Midlothian Council and our partner, Stepping Stones to deliver quality, progressive swimming sessions for each class. You can watch a video related to some of this work here: 

Miss Whyte coordinates a wide range of events with Active Schools to ensure St David’s can be represented at Midlothian events. There has been a significant increase in the number of pupils accessing festivals and sports in 2017/2018 including: 100% of P5 achieving Level 1 Bikeability (including previous non riders), 52% of P4 attended one or more sporting events, 59% of P5 attended one or more sporting events, 76% of P6 attended one or more sporting events and 43% of P7 attended one or more sporting events.

Mr Ross works tirelessly to run Chess Club in school at lunchtime. The children gain a lot from these sessions and are keen to show off their skills! 

We work very closely with our partners from Active Schools who deliver quality clubs at the end of the school day. They run a huge number to programmes and events at different centres both during term time and in the holidays. To find out more about this brilliant service, take a look at their website.
